Introduction: the Role of a Student Representative

Each Faculty at the University of Malta has student representatives at course level, on Faculty Board as well as on Council and Senate. Student representatives participate and attend Board meetings and other functions and present the students’ voice. Students may contact their representative should they require advice or for the representative to deal with a complaint.

Since 1995, she has been serving different positions within the Education Division, teaching and co-ordinating different groups at MCAST and various sectors in the Education Division including the Lifelong Learning Sector. Her interest in learning and travel gave Tania the luxury of teaching and working in different countries including Birmingham (UK), the Canary Islands (Spain) and Brazil. Having adult education as one of her pet interests, she tied this neatly in an Environmental Education (EE) project aimed at Primary school teachers. This launched her activity at the Centre for Environmental Education Research (CEER), co-delivering a Unit at the University of Malta on developing EE walks and organising learning experiences for children, youths and adults including EE walks, talks, youth exchanges, seminars and the likes. Mixing her voluntary work experience with the Diploma in Adult Education (2003), Tania used this in several platforms, through various projects in different  organisations. Having written and carried out several Youth in Action projects, this experience gave her the title of International Projects Officer at the Kunsill Nazzjonali Zaghzagh (KNZ).

Deborah Bartolo, 26 years old, from Fgura, is currently in her third year of teaching at a Primary State School after obtaining a B.Ed degree in 2015. She is currently reading for a Master's Degree in Access to Education specialising in Inclusive Education. One of her strong beliefs is that one can never know enough, and it is of utmost importance that teachers seek opportunities for professional development, this is why this year she has enrolled in a number of projects, Erasmus+ being one of them. Her teaching philosophy is that over time, children might forget what their teacher taught them but they will never forget how their teacher made them feel and this is why she does her utmost to make her students' days at school as memorable as possible. She chose the Inclusive Education stream as she wants to become more knowledgeable about those practices which will truly allow her to teach in a way which empowers all students, enabling them to acquire the necessary skills and abilities to lead meaningful lives.
